Police offered little new information into a Wednesday night shooting at Ridgecrest Apartments in the 1600 block of Roper Hill Road in Gainesville.

A male was shot by an unknown perpetrator, Gainesville Police Department spokesman Cpl. Kevin Holbrook reported Wednesday night.

The perpetrator left before officers arrived, Holbrook said.

The victim was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, Holbrook said, and his condition is unknown.

Several residents at the complex, off Cleveland Highway, said they didn’t see the incident and didn’t know what had happened.

Police have not released the victim’s name, and said an incident report was not yet complete as of Thursday afternoon.

Holbrook said he could not offer details regarding the investigation because of its ongoing nature.
